City + Water: International Perspectives


February 28, 2014

Event Description

For much of the 20th century, highways were built alongside degraded urban rivers and waterfronts, separating them from cities. In recent years, however, environmental design professionals have worked to reintegrate water into the urban landscape. This conference will focus on successful projects in Spain, Colombia, Chile, and the United States.


Co-sponsored by the Center for Latin American Studies, the Master of Urban Design Program, the Department of Architecture, and the Department of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Planning at UC Berkeley.
